I believe I notice this on shutdown/reboot .. "staircasing" of various daemon "OK" prompts.

I just spent a few hours trying to get my head around this without any real luck. I'm pretty sure the function that needs work is view_show_prompt in src/plugins/splash/text/plugin.c - the trailing ": " on the prompt reported in comment #2 is almost certainly the result of cryptsetup's debian/initramfs/cryptroot-script including a ": " in the cryptkey variable while view_show_prompt also adds one, and arguably should be fixed in cryptsetup rather than plymouth. The staircasing issue, I have no idea.

plymouth (0.8.2-2ubuntu20) natty; urgency=low

  * Backport from upstream:
    - [event-loop] Add reference count to event sources (with any luck, this
      will fix LP: #553745).
    - [event-loop] Handle more than 8 events at once (LP: #518926).
    - [terminal] Force enter to output newline.
    - [terminal] Add OPOST to tty attributes (LP: #546251).
    - [terminal] Don't set ISTRIP in terminal attributes.
